Cottage lovely and cosy stayed for five days ideal base for visiting local areas. Concerned about previous remarks about noisey traffic but as out all day not a problem fish and chips down the road lovely worth a visit favourite place was Whitby definitely worth a visit very enjoyable . Cottage in lovely area owner very nice and friendly .
Lovely place, pretty village, pub across the road is a great bonus, and has started to serve food from Thurs - Sun, we didn't get to eat as left on the Friday but it looked lovely! Chippy up road, (that's my best Yorkshire accent) was delicious - proper sea side chips too.
Fabulous location as a short drive from everywhere. Don't be fooled by sun in the village and think it will be sunny by the coast....because it wont be. Good North Sea air.....Take a coat, hat, gloves and scarf, because you'll need them even in summer.
The property is on a very busy road, but we knew this prior to booking and the windows are double glazed, and when closed you can hardly hear a car or the thundering lorries, despite how busy it was we did not have any issues pulling into or off of the drive. The only slightly negative I would say is that the outside area is on the drive, in full view of the road, so don't expect to have a bbq or a quiet glass of wine in the evening sun. The property was very well equipped, including games and DVD's. bedding and beds were comfy and clean and the towels provided were the nicest, fluffiest and thick, I've ever used in a holiday let environment. Owner was very helpful and instructions for arrival and directions were perfect. All in all - Great value and lovely cottage.

Good location for seaside resorts,cottage was well equipped ,the only downside was the bed was too soft for us.Nice pub across the road and fish shop nearby was very good,the locals in the pub were friendly and the food was good.
We stayed for 3 nights in this cosy cottage set in the pretty village of snainton which is about 9 miles from Scarborough. It is a great place to stay in order to enjoy all that the area has to offer. While there we visited Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Dalby Forest and can recommend them all.
The cottage itself is finished to a high standard and everything is provided including central heating, linen, towels and wifi. The owner was there to meet us and explain about the cottage and also the local area eg where the nearest shops were and to answer any other questions we might have had.
The four poster bed was a really lovely touch but there did seem to be a bit of a dip in the middle of the bed, still very comfortable with the memory foam mattress. The shower had two heads, if you use the bigger one it does tend to wet the floor as its very powerful. The only real down side to the cottage was the noise from the very busy main road that the cottage is set on. However we had read the reviews so already knew this and decided to go anyway, take some ear plugs if you are a light sleeper and it shouldn't be a problem.
We stayed here for a long weekend in October. The cottage is very handy for Pickering, Whitby, Scarborough and surrounding areas. The chippy up the road is great - the biggest fish we've ever seen! The cottage itself has everything you need and is very warm and comfortable. As others have noted, there is traffic noise as its right on the main road from Pickering to Scarborough. I was a bit worried about this as I'm a light sleeper, but found the traffic died off during the night. The cottage is obviously old, lovely thick walls and characterful, friendly owner too.
Stayed for 3 nights and used as a base to see the likes of Whitby and Robin Hood Bay. Cottage was clean and tidy with a homely feel. As others have said the road noise can be annoying but for the time we were actually in it was bearable. My wife and I are both 6 foot tall so the bed was bit on the small size as was the shower headroom. Would be fine for shorter people.
Would definitely recommend the Coachman pub just down the road. Excellent food.
